Nice chatting with you

Thanks again to everyone who joined in today's live food chat. Answering questions that fast doesn't live much time for thinking them over, so I hope I gave information that was correct and useful.

As promised, we did a random drawing from the names of people who submitted questions. Kirsty won the autographed copy of Ree Drummond's "The Pioneer Woman Cooks" and Caity gets the copy of Steven Raichlen's "Planet Barbecue." If you'll both send your contact information to me at, I'll put the books in the mail.

And to the person who wanted to know how to cook a roadkill possum, I do actually have an answer: Possum are scavengers who eat carrion, so the only way to make the meat palatable is to catch them live and pen them up for a week while you feed them clean food. My grandmother taught me lots of useful things like that.

Thanks, Kathleen :) Mise-en-place is excellent advice for the high schoolers -- this will be my first cooking class, so I'm interested to see how it goes.

Fun chatting with you!

Wow, the economy must be bad if people are willing to cook roadkill!

Sorry I missed the chat, I'm sure it was interesting.

Yesterday's chat was great. I hope you are planning to do it again soon. I got some new recipes and some new stories as well!

Thanks, Lula. We had more questions than I could answer in an hour, so we'll certainly do it again.
